Upward Sinking

Posted by Ian Smith (London, United Kingdom) on 5 February 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

These solid stone stairs leading up to Waterloo Bridge are obviously a thoroughfare for the intoxicated - with discarded and broken bottles, and a stench I cannot describe - with an off-coloured tidal stain slowly making its way down them.

Great compo... and the off coloured tidal stain is rather pleasing to the eye... as long as it remains separate from the nose

The dark hidden recesses of the humanity are often in the most tourists crowded places.

I like particularly the aesthetic precision of this succession of staircase.
The bluish treatment is perfectly adapted to this rigor.
Very beautiful !

The composition really draws you into the frame. I love the colour and detail in the architecture. Very well done, indeed
